Stone & Wood at Murrwillumbah Arts

The Northern Rivers community has helped raise $25,000 for local palliative-care service provider the Wedgetail Retreat Northern Rivers Community Hospice at Stone & Wood’s third annual Murwillumbah Open Day on 30 March.

‘Besides bringing members of our team and the local community together, we love that Open Day is able to support Wedgetail Retreat in providing their essential services,’ Jasmin Daly, Stone & Wood’s community manger said. ‘It’s clear by the turnout each year that locals admire the organisation’s work and want to get behind them.’

Stone & Wood managing director Ben Summons said the local community’s dedication to the event was a source of inspiration for the Stone & Wood team.

‘For three years now we’ve seen a big, enthusiastic turnout for Murwillumbah Open Day – and in the case of this year, even in stormy weather,’ Ben said. ‘We thank everyone who could make it on the day, plus those who supported the event in any way they could – it means a lot to our entire team.’

On the day, locals also had the chance to taste the famed Mur’bah Swamp Beer, an homage to the legendary Murwillumbah story of the truck that fell into the Tweed River on Good Friday in 2001 and the ‘heroic’ tales of locals diving in to save the beer.

Also in operation on the day was Stone & Wood’s #forcupssake program, a re-useable cup system implemented by the brewery to eliminate single-use plastic from their events.

Murwillumbah Open Day will take place around the same time next year.
